Where the Heart is...
Posted by Merideth Pehler on

HOME. It’s where we feel safe and loved. It’s where we can be ourselves without fear of judgment. It’s where we long to be when we’re away. But not everyone has a home. Family Promise is a national organization whose aim is to transform the lives of families experiencing...

Getting it Right
Posted by Jason Danuser on

Posted by Jason Danuser on

Happy Easter! Jesus Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! As we continue to celebrate the reality that Jesus is alive, we would do well to remember that this means more than simply he lives in heaven. To say Christ is risen is to say that he is alive in the hearts and lives of those who trust in...
